Moneygate chief executive Lee Hartley says: “We have been looking for a particular type of organisation to build our London operation around and Equus not only brings an exceptional IFA business to the table but we also benefit from absorbing an especially strong management team.”

Equus managing director Paul Fife says: “We have been planning this transaction for around a year and a half and we selected Moneygate from a range of potential suitors.”

Moneygate Group bought Buckhinghamshire IFA firm Beacon Asset Management in June last year.
